It has taken me a couple of months of daily searching but I have managed to track down all of the gauges used in the Returns car. I am waiting on 2 of the to arrive still but the rest are in. I do have to paint the bezels as some could only be found in chrome. If repainting doesn't work, I have purchased replacement bezels and glass pieces for the smaller gauges.

The two gauges by the Tachometer in these pictures (to the left and below) will be replaced with the accurate ones once they arrive.

As I mentioned earlier, the only gauge I haven't gotten yet is the speedometer. It is out of a 1985 Porsche and if you can find one, the run about $800.00 used. A little rich for my blood at the moment. Maybe someday if I find a good deal.

The original Volts and Water temp gauges in the Returns car were made by Actron. I haven't been able to source any accurate ones but I did find these Sunpro gauges. Same gauge, different maker. So I went with them as these weren't easy to find either.

Bottom two and the Exhaust Temp gauge are random aircraft gauges off eBay.

Here is where I currently stand on this part of the dash.

Sorry the images are upside down, I keep adjusting them by they are loading this way. : (

No problem.

That's a LOT of gauges for only $41.00 with free shipping.

I grabbed the second set of 6 smaller gauges too. For another $32.00 Free S/H.
You get a couple duplicates but pretty much all of the gauges will match in your dash set up.

I can't wait to get these laser cut and see how they look on the real templates.

Hi, are you able to make extras for the less savvy? Not free of course.

I don't see why not. I'll let you know when I get the the cutting stage of the project.

I even have enough switches, lights and knobs to do a few full populated sets.

Bryan, did you get your panels cut? Could i buy a set from you (including the knobs and lights)? I located an extra throttle quadrant if you want to do some trading.

Hey Lance.

I haven't gotten them cut just yet. I've been very sick the last few weeks so everything has been on hold.
I received a few original items in the mail recently to help make all of my measurements 100% accurate.
I am doing the final work ups now.

Once I get the final programs done and test cut. I will let you know when pricing may be on everything.

I am all set on a quadrant too. Having one made for me. I know people who are looking for one though so you might consider selling it to them. I am sure they would appreciate it.

More to come in the next couple of days on things.
